    Marshall JTM 45 Fawn
    $1,550

    Musical Instruments › Guitars & Basses
    Listed 5 days ago in Murrieta, CA

    Details
    Condition Used - Good
    Brand Marshall

    2004. Made in England, Kt 66 tubes. Amazing tones and best Marshall sound period. Its a 30 watt amp so cranking is a ghood loud not an over the top loud. Its my fave head but I am going back to combos. Its my #1. Its in perfect working order and its in a Fawn Head color! Real deal. Crank her at my home studio. trades ? Maybe better be good and worth 1550 or more. I think this is a steal for 1550 cash. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE!

    Question: Why do people paint their amp's faux fawn & try to pass them off as legit?

    Did they make a JTM45 30 watt in 2004?

    I guess $1550 isn't way out there, but, it's a head scratcher...

    I really have no knowledge about this particular amp but it looks to be in pretty decent condition to me.
    Cheers

    I've never seen a JTM in an 800 style box before but that doesn't mean its not possible. For $1500 it's not a bad deal just to check it out.

    That flesh color is not doing it for me. Kinda ...weird it seems. They should add in some stitches, freckles, a tattoo, random small moles, and peach fuzz to set it off real good. Lol. Other than that it seems like a killer deal for sure. :metal:

    Looks like he put the chassis in a new headbox.

    To me at least.

    Yea thats a JMP style box with plastic corners. I'm pretty sure it should be in the older plexi style box with tolex to the corners. Amps legit. The Fawn cab not so much.

    Yup, off putting color for sure, imo!


    Is the color legit? I see @Dogs of Doom seems to think it isn’t,........l have no idea if this color is real from Marshall or not, anyone?

    Thats not Fawn, that's Faux Mediterranean California McMansion


    Btw possibly done in plastidip, which means it'll peel... and from a texture like that, is probably impossible to remove (maybe solvents?) but can't really be painted over either

    If that's the case, I'd say 400 below market would be a fair offer

    right in your old neck of the woods...
    the JTM? w/ an elephant fawnskin JCM box

    I can believe the JTM45 30 watt. The ser # is from 2004, but, the fawnskin wasn't that a '77-81 w/ smooth levant?

    amparchives has an amp that @matt3310 bought.

    used to belong to SRV. The site says he sold it to Sigi, showing a picture of Sigi & Doug Aldrich w/ it. I knew he sold a fawn to Sigi, I didn't know he sold the SRV one & kept the other...

    Never seen fawn/elephant, except for spray paint...

    Looking closer it's been painted. It looks like You can see imperfections in the tolex that were just painted over. And the color seems off as well, almost looks pink.

    to be fair, the images have a bad white balance. I did a quick correction on 1 image, by adjusting the white/black color balance:

    fawn.jpg

    the original ad images have a purple hue, because the magenta & cyan are out of whack.

    still doesn't look right, no matter, but I just wanted to be fair, in this regard...

    I am reminded of the interior colour of some ghastly 1970s cars.
